The aim of family mediation work is to restore a channel of communication between separated parents so that they can take care of their children together.
WHAT IS THAT?
Family mediation is an autonomous and voluntary path for parents to find shared agreements on children. It is addressed to parents who are separated or who are separating themselves. The qualified family mediator accompanies parents in this process. Its task is to facilitate dialogue and activate their resources in order to arrive at satisfactory solutions for themselves and their children, both now and in the future. All meetings are protected by professional secrecy and independently of the judicial environment.
WHAT DOES IS NOT?
It is not a family or couple therapy. There is no need to reconcile the couple. It does not impose unfair agreements. It does not replace legal advice, nor the judicial process.
WHO IS IT RELATED TO?
To married or unmarried parents. Separate or divorced parents who want to review agreements made in the interests of their children.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
A family mediation course lasts on average 10-12 meetings of about an hour and a half each with weekly or fortnightly frequency. The meetings are for parents only. Interviews can be both couple and individual.
